And now MediaTek steps up performance with the Turbo edition of the same chip squeezing out even better performance - the MT6589T. The new chip will arrive in a bunch of handsets getting released over the next couple of months but now the first benchmarks have surfaced and they are impressive.
The MT6589T-powerd UMi X2 Turbo is one of the most anticipated devices in China, and it scored a very good 14 525 on AnTuTu.
It actually appears to have beaten the Google Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 tablets in terms of performance, and that’s quite an achievement for a device that will be sold at a very affordable price.
Looking at the Galaxy S III score of around 16 000 to 17 000, the Umi device approaches it closely. And on Quadrant it even beats last year’s HTC One X. Not bad at all, is it?
